Mississippi State University Reviews
Review Mississippi State University
I attended Mississippi State University as a freshman. Although it was a little overwhelming to go from a graduating class of 34 to big classes, I adjusted very well. In fact, I can truly say that attending MSU was the right choice for me. I made many new friends, got involved in many activities, and learned a lot from my classes. I recommend MSU to any high school graduate or transferring junior college student. Go DAWGS!
My overall experience at Mississippi State has been great. Coming here has allowed me to grow, meet different people from all over the world, and experience great opportunities with their wonderful organizations. I feel my school is unique because no other college can throw a football game like Mississippi State, no other college could help my growth experience as Mississippi State has, and no other college could provide some of the most carrying faculty as Mississippi State. I would choose Mississippi State University again because being here makes me feel at home!
Mississippi State is a fantastic school. I would say they do put a little more into the athletics than they do students. For instance, they expect students to donate to the athletic fund and move their cars during athletic events to make room for the visitors. Overall, I love attending here!
